It's Monday! What are you reading?


This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey

Books read last week: How did I only finish one book this week? I thought I'd have tons of free time this weekend, but it was not meant to be...
Books currently reading:
  • The Secret Life of Henrietta lacks by Rebecca Skloot (on my Kindle since I'll be on vacation)
  • I Saw Ramallah by Mourid Barghouti
  • Fade to Blue by Bill Moody (Suspense/Mystery Challenge)--on my computer so I am having issues getting around to reading it
Books waiting in the wings:
  • A Thousand Sisters by Lisa Shannon
Give Away: International, closes at 5:00pm (Pacific Time) on Saturday, April 9, 2011

Definitely going to check out The Violin of Auschwitz. Have a great reading week.

Brooke--I have been waiting quite a while to read the Henrietta Lacks book, I hope it's good

Nise--Oh good! It really is a wonderful little book

NotoriousSpinks said...

Of course! You always have the good books over here. LOL! Enjoy your week!

Mari said...

The Violin... sounds very good but such a touch read. I wasn't able to read the boy in pajamas, so important but too emotional for me.

I read A Thousand Sisters earlier this year, haven't reviewed it though. Another tough book but with an important message. As this runner loves running stories. I hope you enjoy it!

Have a great week

OOH I want to see what you thought of Born Under A Million Stars!

Shadows... I meant shadows :)

Just finished reading your review of the Violin of Auschwitz and enjoyed it very much. Fade to Blue sounds interesting espeically since I love mysteries. Have a great week!

Melissa Mc (Gerbera Daisy Diaries) said...

I read A Thousand Sisters last year...still haunted with the images and issues of the Congo...

The Henrietta Lacks book is on my list of books I want to read.

Helen's Book Blog said...

Wow, while I was flying across the country, you guys were commenting...

Notorious--Thank you for the vote of confidence! I just hope I find time during our trip to actually read since we'll be so busy

Mari--I have read a lot of Holocaust literature and Violin was less detailed than many. Glad to hear you liked A Thousand Sisters

Sheila--Loved Million Shadows!

Jennifer--I did have a good week, thank you for stopping by

Pussreboots--Ah, balance during spring break. I am a bit worried I won't read much since my daughter and I are on a trip

Jan--Fade to Blue is on my computer so it is taking me a while to find time to read it unfortunately

Melissa--Yes, the Congo is so devastating. I'll have to gear up for reading Thousand Sisters

Lauri--I haven't heard of a Modern Witch, I'll go see what it's all about

Joy--I've got my Kindle ready to go! Now I just need to find the time to turn it on and read it!

Aths said...

I've been very hesitant to read Henrietta Lacks, in spite of hearing how awesome it is. Maybe that's the problem - all that hype. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Helen's Book Blog said...

Aths--So far Henrietta is interesting, but I am just not getting enough reading done during this spring break...
